Fight Club without Brad Pitt

If you haven’t seen Fight Club yet, you’re doing yourself a disservice. It’s an incredible movie. Okay, after having saying that I don’t care about spoiling it for you weirdos who have not yet seen it. At the end, it turns out that Brad Pitt is just a alternate personality that is created by Edward Norton’s psyche. Edward suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID), coupled with insomnia and paranoid schizophrenia. It’s crazy. So it turns out all the scenes with Brad Pitt don’t include Brad Pitt at all; it’s just Edward Norton talking to himself. Told you it was crazy.

What happens in this video is some clever fan decided to redo one of the pivotal scenes from the movie talking out the alternate personality/delusion of Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). It’s cool, it’s short, and it’s kewl.

Muppets movie win the internet

Muppets Most Wanted is the new Muppets movie. This is their teaser trailer to make some noise about it. Across the internet, they won. They used tweets, instead “movie critics”, to promote their movie. The movie critics often get it wrong, and their opinions usually matter just as much as regular Twitter folk anyway.

The first tweet got it right, “I’ll prolly go see this”. If they’re still this funny and creative, the movie is bound to be decent.

And you wanna know another reason I’m going to see it? Because #YOLO, that’s why.

Star Trek as Power Rangers

Growing up, I loved the Power Rangers, probably because I couldn’t yet recognize the blatant racism (the Black Ranger being black and the Yellow Ranger being Chinese). I was always waiting for Zordon to teleport me to his lair, where I would receive my cool belt buckle. I wanted to be the Blue Ranger, but conceded that I would probably have to settle for the Yellow Ranger. I was okay with that, as long as my outfit didn’t come with the skirt thing.

Star Trek, on the other hand, I had no interest in. My older brother would come home early from school, just to have control over the TV so he could watch it. Ugh, how I hated that. I just wanted to watch Recess, Hey Arnold!, and Rugrats–is that so much to ask for!? But no, I’d have to sit and watch Star Trek: Voyager. But there was one silver lining: Jeri Ryan. Oh my god, how beautiful was she. Oh man, my prepubescent self is getting excited just thinking of her in her tight maroon outfit.

Ugh, I have to stop. Have a great Tuesday, y’all!

Black Wizards: Key and Peele talk about inner-city wizard schools

Why not start 2014 off with a laugh?

I know whenever I watched the Harry Potter movies, I always wondered where the minorities were. Sure, there was Cho Chang, but that’s a lot of caucasian wizards. Made me think that the wizard and witch mutation gene was specific to a population with paler pigmentation.

Allow Key and Peele to introduce you into a new magical world! There are black wizards, and wizardry schools, in inner-city areas. They’re just not well-funded and, let’s say, less magical. Allow the principal of Vincent Clortho Public Wizard School show you around. The janitor is a little rough around the edges, but he has good intentions–I think.

Well, this just goes to show that the wizard and muggle worlds share at least one similarity: the public school system sucks.

Have a great 2014 y’all! I love you all!

Stephen Chow’s “Journey to the West” looks amazing

I don’t know if you watched Stephen Chow’s “Kung Fu Hustle“, but it was incredible. It was a contemporary take on the old Hong Kong-styled kung fu movie. It did a great job of not taking itself too seriously. It was funny, packed full of action, and a pleasure to watch.

Well, Stephen is back at it with his take on an old Chinese tale. The original “Journey to the West” talks about a Buddhist monk’s journey from China to India. The monk must travel to the west to obtain “sacred texts”. Throughout his journey, he is accompanied by disciplines chosen by Buddha to assist him. The Wikipedia page is really long, and I am not going to go any deeper into the story. Here it is for anyone who wants to read it (just wait and watch the movie!)

As they say in the business, it’s not about the destination, but the journey!

Jonah and Channing back to Channing all over your Tatum in 22 Jump Street

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are coming back, under the tutelage of Ice Cube and Ron Swanson. After their first successful trip where the brought the gym teacher and cool kid to justice, they’re now going to college to do something similar. Woo!

I wonder if they’ll one-strap it or no-strap it.

Post Script: Channing all over your Tatum.

I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch.

Have you gotten enough of the Anchorman 2 publicity?

No? Great! The movie release is being paired with a release of Ron’s very finest “Great Odin’s Raven”–a scotch/whiskey blend.

Ron is clearly surprised that the public is getting into his secret stash of alcohol:

Also, if you haven’t been pumped about the release, here’s an interview with the four main cast members, out of character. Yeah, they’re real people under those facades! Crazy.

Have a great Wednesday, y’all!
